Alt-House is an agency and production house with a unique vision,
and we operate within a community-minded business model.
Working with us, our clients and creatives provide
integral and meaningful contributions towards
and inclusive and progressive future.
We believe it's possible to excel in a commercial standard of creative production,
whilst maintaining a real commitment to supporting independent artists and businesses.
Taking inspiration from various global movements, we believe this is the pathway
towards a future evolution of media and culture within Naarm,
via supporting the next generation of visionaries and creators in our community.
We run self-funded community programs, aimed toward expanding
available access and resources for small businesses and creatives.
We welcome brand partners, individuals and companies
looking to get more involved in community initiatives.

Alt-Curated, run by Alt-House, is a platform to bring together local creatives and the broader community. We organise curated pop-up events, showcasing local makers selling unique, sustainable, and slow made products. Our focus is to build a community that connects creatives to their peers and customers, promoting both growth and awareness of small businesses.
We also welcome creatives, local designers and makers to hire our unique converted warehouse space on weekends for private pop-up shops, launches and workshops.
If you have an idea in mind, we want to bring it to life.
To be considered for future Alt-Curated events,
or to chat about our pop-up pricing and your project,
please get in touch.

We understand making the jump from natural light to studio
can be intimidating and expensive.
We're here to make this transition a little easier.
We are now running ongoing bite-sized accessible workshops for photographers of various levels of experience.
Our workshops will be an entry point for those wanting to move into studio work, as well as those wanting to up-skill,
learn a few more tricks and elevate their images.
Held in our beautiful Fitzroy studio,
our groups are limited to 10 students per class,
and run by our team of commercial lighting professionals.
Beginner and intermediate classes info below.
Advanced sessions coming in the near future.
Private 1-on-1 workshop sessions are also available,
